神愛世人,甚至將他的獨生子賜給他們,叫一切信他的,
不至滅亡,反得永生。(約3:16).

中文靈修:幸福

所以不要為明天憂慮。因為明天自有明天的憂慮。一天的難處一天當就夠了。——馬太福音6:34

King George V 曾在贈友人的聖經扉頁寫道:“幸福的秘訣不在於做你喜歡的事,而在於學習去做你需要做的事情”。很多人認為幸福隻是持續不懈地追尋的夢想,永遠都無法實現。就如你永遠無法在彩虹之端找到金子,因為那隻是孩童的想法。金子實際上是需要辛苦地從山澗中開采出來的。

耶穌曾告訴他的門徒“你們要先求他的國和他的義,這些東西都要加給你們了”。這裏的“東西”指的是讓人感到幸福和安全感的東西。例如食物、飲品、衣服、避難處。他教導我們說不要先尋求這些生存的必需品,而是要先“尋求他的國”,之後我們所需要的會自動地供應給我們。遵從他的教導,便是幸福的秘訣。

今日禱告:
父上帝,當我煩躁不安的時候,求你饒恕我。因為你已經應許供應我的所有需求。
奉耶穌基督的名求,阿們!

Daily Devotion:Happiness

So don't be anxious about tomorrow. God will take care of your tomorrow too. Live one day at a time.—Matthew 6:34 (TLB)

King George V wrote on the flyleaf of the Bible of a friend, “The secret of happiness is not to do what you like to do, but to learn to like what you have to do.” Too many think of happiness as some sort of will-o’-the-wisp thing that is discovered by constant and relentless searching. It is not found by seeking. It is not an end in itself. Pots of gold are never found at the end of the rainbow, as we used to think when we were children; gold is mined from the ground or panned laboriously from a mountain stream.

Jesus once told His disciples, “Seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you.” The “things” He spoke of were the things that make us feel happy and secure—food, drink, clothes, shelter. He told us not to make these the chief goal of our lives but to “seek the kingdom” and these needs would be automatically supplied. There, if we will take it, is the secret of happiness.

Prayer for the day:
Forgive me, Father, for the times when I am anxious. You have promised to take care of all my needs.
In Jesus' name,Amen!
